#onMonday: Opportunity hides in plain sight
Whether you deserve an opportunity is not a function of what you’ve done in the past alone.  A great deal of it rest on what it is expected of you to do the with the opportunity.

In essence,  you should keep an ambition robust enough to furnish the opportunity should it present itself.

If you don’t have a plan on how to spend $200 you will never know it is an opportunity should someone gives you the something of the worth or more.

Like the popular saying: opportunity dances with only those it meets on the floor ready to dance.

Be wise!
Be ambitious!!
Be successful!!!

#onMonday: Winning is half measure, domination is the full measure

If you ask Vince Lombardi about winning.  I am sure he has written a whole lot about it. He even wrote about the discipline of Winning.

As near perfect as winning and the completion of it might seem. It is not enough.  Winning is not success, although series of winning culminate into it. Winning is what I call half measure. But to succeed, there shouldn’t be half measure.

You go for full measure and that’s domination. How do you dominate?
Easy, always make your new winning the least acceptable winning.  That way you remain the pace setter.

Remember: Winning is half measure, domination is the full measure

Keep winning to dominate.

Good morning

#ONMONDAY: Slow but Steady

Whatever your endeavour is, always be original.
Be yourself! If you think you’re slow, it is because you compare your potentials with that of another.

We are all unique in our capabilities. He did it quickly is different from he does it better.

The more you get drawn into direct comparison there’s always a chance you’re going to come short.

Don’t mind an early starter, you can pick up on what they miss while rushing.

   Toll your path and may be you will do it better because you use your hindsight while they don’t. 

Keep winning.                             
Good morning

#onMonday: potential vs willpower

Potential is tool for success but no guarantee of success in itself.

Every man virtually has it in him/her. The will to unlock it is the key to its realisation.

Many fall in the face of challenges because they overwhelmed themselves by telling themselves they’re not ready nor have what it takes.

What it takes is getting off your back side and question your will-power.    

Remember:
The problem is not as much of whether you have the potential to do big things but whether you can ask of your self the big question and convincingly answer sure I can!

Good morning

OnMonday:Popular Test

#OnMonday:
Life is all about hustle! That’s a rife word in the world today. Do what you can and care less whose Ox is gored.

When you are rooting for the top, you can do anything, but in the end we all do it to search for inner peace.

What is the point of attaining this state and the reason for which you seek it has been defeated.

To maintain your virtue, one needs courage.
And for courage,
“One isn’t necessarily born with courage, but one is born with potential. Without courage, we cannot practice any other virtue with consistency. We can’t be kind, true, merciful, generous, or honest.”

-Maya Angelou

This is by far the most tested feature of a man.

Good morning

#OnMonday: Living the Dream (Dream pt. 1)

SegunOnMonday: Living the Dream (Dream pt. 1)

Are you familiar with the popular saying that if your dream doesn’t scare you, it is not big enough? If you’re, good! If you’re not, you’ve not missed much!!

No matter the size of your dream, there will always be a drift, slight or huge between the dream and realisation. Before you ask me why, forces like: your potential, environment, background, emerging opportunities/challenges will always make the difference.

If success date is an appointment you can put on diary, everyone will do nothing except stay glued to the calendar for the date to come.

Your dream will almost certainly be the cornerstone of your success but be careful not to throw it out of the window in the face of unplanned forces.

I will try to translate this adage in my native:
“Planning to build an edifice like none ever seen is a tip of vanity”
If can’t manage your dream when you’re small, you will not do better when you’re big.

If your dream is to impact positively on people’s lives, don’t wait till you have millions, accommodate that dream in your day to day.

That is what I call living the dream!!!

Good morning

#OnMonday: Challenging the Obstacle

OnMonday: Challenging the Obstacle

The story of the Bull
Have you witnessed a bull fight before?…I will take that as a ‘Yes’

When a Bull is challenging an adversary, it doesn’t just go on and on in attacking….what does it do?

A bull attacks, withdraws, and charge again!
The second charge is always an improvement on the first; the third stronger than the second……and it goes on and on until it is defeated or it triumphs!

In the end, even the conquered bull is a hero and that makes it better than you….that challenges once and withdraw even with your competence and potentials.

There’s half a chance from the go that you can surmount a challenge and that’s why you took it on in the first instance.

Know that you will lose more if you stop now!!!
Think of time spent, sapping energy, option forgone already and you will see reasons to demand more from yourself.

SegunOnMonday Dancing Opportunities

I was in this investment office lastweek and before I could discuss my reason for been there, I saw this quote on the wall:

“Opportunity dances with only those it meets on the dance floor”

Need not say much but it is best to put yourself in vantage position awaiting the right chance.

This is a step beyond mere hope and it always put you in good stead when presented with chance.

The opportunities will come! They always do but how ready are you to snap them up?

Be positive and have a great week!

Congrats to my Friends at University of Westminster that just finished their masters program. Thumbs up mates!

#OnMonday: Impossible is Temporal

SegunOnMonday: Impossible is temporary

Impossible will continue to be in existence to the end of time,
It is a word used for a yet to be surmounted challenge not a bar to take on a task or challenge.

Before the first craft landed in space – going there was deemed impossible.

100 years ago, talking to another person 1000 miles through the air was impossible.


“Never think there is anything impossible for the soul. It is the greatest heresy to think so. If there is sin, this is the only sin; to say that you are weak, or others are weak.”

Swami Vivekananda

The word impossible is therefore just a public declaration that you will be the first to conquer the challenge.
If you believe in yourself why follow weak minds who did not even try before joining the chorus of impossibility.

Think about it!

Good morning

#OnMonday: Longterm Success

SegunOnMonday:

Sometimes some people doubt their very essence when fail to set mind to task on what needs to be achieved.
In the sight of this you lose ample resources and you waste opportunities that come begging in the name of not knowing what to do.

You find your idleness seized by matters seemingly less productive and that will cumulatively breed frustration.

Though many times all you can do is try, but it is worthy if you have your sight on the ultimate objective. This should not deter you even when unwanted pebbles on the way try to dislodge you.

Charles Noble said:

“You must have long term goals to keep you from being frustrated by short term failures”

My friend, remember that the bottom is always crowded ’cause it is easy to get there.
Aim for the top. There’s plenty of room there and there are so few at the top it is almost lonely there.

Moving up!
Good Morning
